I bought a beautiful ring and pendant while touring through the shops on Front Street. The colors were the beautiful turquoise of the ocean and though I am not in St.Maarten anymore I still get to wear it around my neck! I have a gorgeous souvenir of the wonderful time we had there and each time I wear it, it brings back those memories.

There's really not much to say about this place. It's touristy obviously but nothing to be WOW'd about. It's definitely a great background for a picture that's about it. We went through the back way and well, don't do that because it seemed a little sketchy. You can definitely walk the whole strip in an hour but if you're stopping in stores and what not then it can be 3-4 hours. So definitely wear sun-block and maybe a hat and comfy sandals/shoes.

If you are looking for a good deal on high-quality or custom made jewelry, this is the place. The prices might even make up for the cost of your travel. Probably half the price of that at your mall jeweler. Try Dazzling Gens for sure. Come ready to bargain. Prices are always good, but on days with no cruise ships in, you can really drive them down.
Some good food on and around front street. The Green House is always good, but try the little Indian and Jerk places - fantastic. Stop by The Yoda Guy's shop. The owner actually developed the character for Star Wars. He has a nice collection of movie stuff and is super friendly.

Went first time about 6PM and everything was shut down, surprising for a tourist location. Went second time on a Sunday at about 11AM and 90% of the shops were closed. 3rd time kind of a charm. Monday morning, still a lot of places closed, apparently because no cruise ships were at port. Some nice shops but nothing really stood out, just typical touristy places.
